Christmas Gift Ideas

Now most of you will know that I'm a bit funny about asking for makeup and beauty stuff for Christmas - I prefer to buy it myself (for some reason it feels like more of a treat that way.... I'm an odd girl!). However, I've been scouring the interwebs and I've come across some gorgeous gifts that have almost tempted me to change my ways. Here's my top picks of this year's makeup and beauty gifts:

Bare Minerals Pure Luxuries Gift Set - £59
This gift set has really caught my eye, offering a whopping 8 eyecolours, 2 liner shadows, an all over face colpur, a faux tan, 3 blushes, 2 brushes and a glitzy gold train case. Excellent value for money I think.

Lush Gingerbread House Tin - £13.95
Quite honestly, how on earth could you NOT want this gift? 4 fab Christmas bath products and a super cute tin to use all year round (or to be reused next Christmas as the wrapping for some lovely homemade gingerbread men for Grannie!)

Soap and Glory "The Mini Series" Hatbox - £10
What a cute little stocking filler! This gorgeous hatbox contains 4 travel size treats from Soap and Glory and a lovely pink shower puff (a girl can never have too many!). Even better, the hatbox can be used throughout the year to store even more goodies and treats!

Frontcover To Go Eye Collection - £35 £23.33 from Boots this week!
Frontcover have bought out a whole range of super gifts this year, but I thought this was worth flagging up whilst it's on offer as it really is a bargain of a set. I love the fact that they've included a mini palette to pop in your favourite colours.

Estee Lauder Gloss to Go Pure Colour Lip Gloss Set - £28
When I saw this on the Estee Lauder counter in Debenhams, I let out a little squeal - what a cute gift. These shrunkdown lip glosses would make a perfect gift for any gloss junkie out there, with a whole range of colours and finishes. Alternatively, this gift could easily be broken up into stocking fillers for the ladies in your life (and maybe keep a cheeky one or two for yourself!)

ELF 32 Peice Eyeshadow Palette - £9
There are so many fabulous things on ELF that would make excellent stocking fillers or secret santa presents but I've picked this because it's something I've actually tried. An excellent palette which will keep any girl (or lady) happy. (I'll be bringing you a review of this palette in the next couple of days)

These are some of my favourite bits and bobs that I've been whilst looking for presents - what are your favourite makeup and beauty gifts out this Christmas?

  1. I don't use makeup that much or that often but in the winter, I just hate cracking skin!!
    So i don't usually mind getting soap and lotion as a gift (I normally get 3 sets each year)
    Last year, my boyfriend got me the Lavender gift set here:
    I think I'm going to ask again this year, but maybe the Hawaiian one.
